  • No #AgeOfAdeline?

  • Risky placing Sharen Davis at #1. The Academy scarcely takes note of her gorgeous work, unfortunately.

  • Josamaroo

    Hello has anyone seen The Witch? Fantastic movie, set in the 1600’s and the costumes are the best part. Oh wait, it’s a horror film so obviously no one cares. I guess people these days like recognizing the same movies and actors/actresses over and over every year.

  • Jonathan

    The official costume designer for “Silence” is Dante Ferretti, not Sandy Powell.

  • Tobey

    Care to explain fantastic beasts going from the favourite to not nominated in one or two weeks?

  • PixarAnimator

    What happened to “Queen of Katwe”?

    • It came and went and nobody noticed it.

  • Bryce

    Fantastic Beasts
    Jackie
    La La Land
    Live by Night
    Rogue One

    If you are wondering why Rogue One makes it on my list, it is because if the use of the original costumes from the original trilogy (I think it will win a nom, but not the win). I have to go with a surprising choice and that is Fantastic Beasts. It gets the win because on how well they captured the clothing of 1920’s.

  • sailingsam

    You forgot Kubo and the two strings…..amazing costumes in mini form.

    • Jacques

      Lmao agreed one hundred percent. Although Zootopia could be a dark horse

  • Pokermask

    Here are my predictions for Best Costume Design at the moment:
    Allied (Joanna Johnston)
    Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Colleen Atwood)
    Florence Foster Jenkins (Consolata Boyle)
    Jackie (Madeline Fontaine)
    La La Land (Mary Zophres)

    Top choice: La La Land

  • Jacques

    Allied, La La Land or Jackie please and thank you.

    • Jacques

      Also Nocturnal Animals was underrated
